South Park: Fractured But Whole has been delayed for a second time, Ubisoft announced today. The RPG, which initially set to launch at the start of December has been pushed back for a second time by developers.
Fans of the franchise can now expect a release date for the title in Ubisoft’s next fiscal year which runs between the April 2017 and March 2018. A reason for the second setback has not been made clear by the publishers, however, a representative for the company confirmed that:
“The teams at South Park and Ubisoft San Francisco are committed to pushing the envelope during development to deliver the best experience possible, and this additional time will allow them to do so”.
South Park: The Stick of Truth, the previous title in the franchise also experienced similar problems in 2012 when it was expected to launch, the game finally released in March 2014 – a year and a half later.
The sequel, will directly follow on from the narrative that unfolded in South Park: The Stick of Truth, will again situate the player in the role of the new kid. However, instead of a fantasy driven narrative this time developers have created a story-line that parodies that of the superhero franchise. Fans of the franchise will be able to choose from twelve classes in the new title including: Brutalist, Blaster, Speedster, Elementalist, Gadgeteer, Mystic, Cyborg, Psychic, Assassin, Commander, Netherborn, and Karate Kid.
South Park: Fractured But Whole is set to launch on Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4.
